Catherine Goodman (LSHTM)
Luke's first degree was a MA in International Relations (First) with two years of Economics at the University of St Andrews. After graduating, Luke worked for two years with an African development charity. This experience encouraged Luke to train in policy research and analysis and so he then studied for an MSc in Development Economics at SOAS (Distinction). After an internship with the UN's International Labour Organisation, Luke commenced his current PhD in October 2011. His main research interests are food security, rural livelihoods and poverty reduction in sub-Saharan Africa.
